I don't even know what to think. I said I hated the losi 2.0 body when it was first released, but once I saw it in person and got my paint on it, I fell in love. I don't know that, that will be the case for buggies, but you never know. If it's a performance advantage, I'm game.

Yup, I don't care if it's the ugliest thing in the world. If it's faster or better in any way I am for it.

Haha I know for a fact that this body will cut down on lap times. I remember when the 2.0 truggy style body for the rc8t. It took away a lot of it's push and made the car outstanding. I think it will make buggies even better as well handling wise. That's not even considering the engine operating temperature. Hahaha

It looks like crap plain and simple. If the shape of my buggy body is the difference between a win and a loss, I better be getting paid to run that ugly thing.

Operating temps? On a good race tune temps mean nothing. You can drop a mills temp say tewnty degrees, but if it and gettin enough lube it's toast.

That is true, but to some people temps do matter. The way I look at it is if the engine is running good, don't worry about the temp

only advantage I can see is the roofline is high, thus pushing air onto the wing.

Mmhm. That is what the serpent buggy went to accomplish. And it seems to have worked. It just screams "traction!" haha. Just as long as it doesn't have too much to where it makes the car jump weird. Hope the body is strong though because it looks like it is out in the open and a roof landing will hurt.

does this design actually make that big of a difference in handling in an off road car?
